Taylor Swift: Enchanted

Thursday, August 11, 2011

About the song:
Album: Speak Now
Released: 2010
Writing Credits: Taylor Swift
Label: Big Machine Records
Length: 5:53

The story: Enchanted chronicles a girl making the acquaintance of a guy and being enchanted to have met him. She wonders about him, hoping the end to their story hasn’t been written.

My thoughts: like all of Taylor’s songs, this one has a story to tell. And, this song truly is enchanting… and charming… and sweet. Some of the lines have the potential to be taken as overtures of something less pure, but all in all, this is probably my favorite song on the country darling’s latest release. What the song reminds me of is the blush of a first crush.

Since she burst onto the scene at the age of fourteen, Taylor has become an overnight sensation. Her albums have gone multi-platinum and she has sold record-breaking copies of them. Understandably, most of her material is suited for young teens and pre-teens (note one line begging the source of Taylor’s enchantment not to be in love with “anybody else.”) because that is the twenty-one year olds target audience. I have heard and enjoy all three of her albums, while surprisingly her latter two have less suggestive overtones than her self-titled debut. Taylor’s strengths lie in her writing; she doesn’t have a magnetic voice. Enchanted is one track I think she does sound wonderful on. The song requires a breathy kind of innocence and she nails that.

It is too bad this hasn't been a single yet because I'd love to see what Taylor would do with a music video - it'd be enchanting. 

The lyrics: This night is sparkling / I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home / I was enchanted to meet you.
